    I use Beyer Dynamic DT150 for tracking and they've given me 10 years of service so far!
    (Albeit with a little bit of amalgamating tape around the ear foam 😉 )
    There weren't so many options then & my method was "what are the cans I've seen in all
    the BBC radio videos?"!
    They seem pretty flat and clear to me. I've used DT770's & closed back AKGs & Sonys
    which were all good - they all did the job just fine.
    I prefer open-back for reference & mixing - I use AKG Q701 for that & I've not had
    to revisit a mix with them. Be careful to have the bass audible but not huge if
    mixing in headphones - that'll translate to ENORMOUS bass on speakers! 🙂
